Dr. Ihab Anwar got the opportunity of a lifetime when he took a semester at sea. He and his classmates set sail from the United Kingdom, and went on to explore 15 different countries before ending in the ports of Fort Lauderdale, FL. Being as he is originally from the UK, Anwar did not do much traveling in his younger years; but he got a heavy dose of exploration from this trip. The ship took the along the coasts of France and Spain, before heading southwest down to Brazil and making its way back up through the Caribbean and to its final destination.
One of the stops that the ship made before making it onto the continental United States was on the enchanting island of Puerto Rico. Once a European colony of Spanish and Portuguese influence, Puerto Rico is now on United States territory and shows a glimpse of the culture that Dr. Ihab Anwar loud be fully immersing himself with at the University of Rhode Island. But in the meantime, there was plenty to explore and he was wasting no time. He first explored the streets of Old Town San Juan before heading to Rincon, which is on the southwestern tip of the country and is where Puerto Rico gets its surfing fame Rincon is the destination of many international surf competitions, and can get some very big waves at times.
Aside from seeing Rincon, Dr. Ihab Anwar also traveled to the island of Vieques and got to explore the El Yunque rainforest.
